Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg is turning his back on action movies, saying he has no interest in directing another high-octane blockbuster.
Spielberg, 65, made a name for himself in Hollywood with big-budget sci-fi and adventure movies including "Jaws", "Jurassic Park" and the "Indiana Jones" franchise, but he now wants to concentrate on other genres, The Hollywood Reporter said.
The director said that he was drawn to his latest movie "Lincoln" as it is a pared-down biopic without big action sequences or special effects.
"I knew I could do the action in my sleep at this point in my career. In my life, the action doesn't hold any... it doesn't attract me anymore," he said.
Spielberg also said that he never expected his acclaimed 1993 drama "Schindler's List" to resonate with audiences, which is why he shot it in black and white.
"I did everything I needed to do to tell the story the way
I thought the story should be told, to give it as much integrity as I could, never expecting it to make a dollar," he added.
The film narrates US President Abraham Lincoln's struggle to abolish slavery and overcoming a civil war (1861¿1865).
Daniel Day-Lewis plays Lincoln in the film.
